Additional circuits include:
– current protections from inter-phase short circuits (different variants);
– protection from grounding;
– circuits of commercial and technical counters of electric energy;
– other pieces (start of overcurrent protection, control buttons etc);
– operation electromagnetic blocking;
– current, voltage and power converter, arch fault protection schemes.
Electrical connection of roll-out elements and relay cabinets is made by means of one or two plug connections with movable parts fixed on ends of wrap hoses and movable are on the bottom of relay compartment of a PSG cabinet to enable an easy substitute for a new type of breaker with no re-install of auxiliary cabinet circuits.
Factory schemes of auxiliary circuits by their application are developed for lead-in switchgear cabinets, section breakers, section interrupters, voltage transformers, auxiliaries transformers, lines outgoing to GBC, auxiliaries transformers.
Side panels supplied with PSG are fitted for schemes of general station application of transformer control schemes, system of rectified current supply, AFL, bus protection, lead-in supply of operation ties, schemes of general station AFP etc.
Schemes of general station application can be also applied in relay compartments of section breakers, power fuses, cable assemblies.
Factory schemes of auxiliary circuits are developed in two variants:
– based on electromechanical relays;
– based on microprocessor relay protection and control devices.
Power account circuits can be based on induction electronic counters or multifunctional microprocessor counters of domestic or foreign manufacture.
PSG cabinets of domestic manufacture are parts of package switchgear represented by a set of cabinets interconnected within a section (see figure 1).
PSG may consist of bus bridges between two rows of transformers, bus inlets and hanging relay cabinets (see figure 1).
PSG cabinet is a stiff assembled metal construction (casing) with built-in devices and controls of main circuit with elements of electrical connections (conductor buses). Upper part of every PSG contains all required relay protection equipment, automatics, metering, alarming controls and secondary circuits in a separate insulated compartment (hereinafter referred to as a relay compartment.

PSG configuration based on PSG K 10 cabinets

1 – Section of PSG cabinets; 2 – Bus bridge; 3 – Bus inlets; 4 – Hanging relay cabinets
Every PSG cabinet has a roll-out truck (roll-out element) equipped with some controls (depending on a scheme of main circuit) such as vacuum breakers, voltage transformers, fuses, bus breakers.
Casing of a PSG cabinet has a shutter mechanism to ground a breaker and blocking devices. There are main circuit contacts fixed in the cabinet casing.
A roll-out element is located in the medium part of a cabinet and it may be in the following positions relative to the casing:
– operating;
– control;
– maintenance.
Operating position is an extreme rolled-in position of a roll-out element (RE). In operating position, separable joints of main and auxiliary circuits are closed and the roll-out element is fully connected to perform its functions. RE operating position is fixed and the breaker can be switched on in this position.
Control position is an extreme rolled-out position of a roll-out element (RE) when main circuit contacts are broken, contacts of auxiliary circuits are connected and enable testing of roll-out elements and auxiliary circuits testing. RE control position is not fixed either. Opening of RE compartment door may be performed only in this extreme rolled-out position as well as breaker switching on.
Maintenance position is a position when a roll-out element is fully extracted from a cabinet casing, contacts of main and auxiliary circuits are open and the roll-out element can be subject to inspection and maintenance.
Cabinet casing is a riveted bolted construction of zinced steel some 2-3 mm thick divided by baffles into 4 insulated plated compartments.
– Relay compartment – А
– Roll-out element compartment – B
– Assembled bus compartment – C
– Inlet-outlet compartment – D
Cabinet casing is equipped with the following main mechanisms:
– shutter mechanism to close fixed main circuit contacts when a roll-out element is in a control or maintenance positions;
– grounding breaker and mechanism of grounding breaker control to enable grounding of an open part of main circuit;
– mechanism of roll-out element blocking when a rolled-out element compartment door is open.

Grounding breaker

For secure PSG maintenance, line bus compartment is equipped with a grounding breaker. The grounder consists of a grounding blades unit where all elements are fixed to a rigid frame. The grounder is activated by a handle of the spare parts kit and handle turning load is transmitted by means of drive facing the facade cabinet panel to the grounding blades unit.
PSG cabinets are equipped with line bus grounders and perform blocking that prevents:
– roll-in of roll-out element into operating position with switched grounder position;
– grounder switching in case when roll-out element is in an operating position.
For this purpose, actuator driving shaft is connected with a lever and a system of blockings.
Roll-out elements

Roll-out elements

Roll-out elements of PSG cabinets represent an assembled welded construction on rollers with mounted various controls depending on the type of cabinet (breakers, voltage transformers, auxiliaries transformers etc).
Roll-out elements (RE) are performed in hardware:
– RE with a vacuum breaker;
– RE with a bus breaker;
– RE with voltage transformers;
– RE with auxiliaries transformers.
Roll-out element in a PSG cabinet has two fixed positions: operating and control.
Roll-out element in the operating position is in a cabinet casing and main and auxiliary circuits are attached. Control position of roll-out element is in a cabinet casing when main circuits are open, blades and sockets of separable connections are at a safe (in regard of electric breakdown) distance from each other. In this case auxiliary circuits are closed and socket connections of auxiliary circuits are in a jointed condition.
To provide electric contact of roll-out element with a cabinet casing, the roll-out element is equipped with a grounding blade sliding along the grounding bus set on the bottom of breaker compartment in a PSG cabinet.
Descriptions of breakers are provided in manuals accompanying these breakers.
Movement of roll-out element from a control position into operating position and back are made manually with a worm gear (lead screw).

To prevent wrong operation of PSG cabinets, the following blockings are provided:
– mechanical;
– electromechanical.
Mechanical blocking does not provide for:
– movement of roll-out element from operating position into control position and back with a switched vacuum breaker;
– grounding blade switching in a PSG cabinet when a roll-out element is in operating position;
– roll-in of roll-out element in a switched position of a grounding breaker;
– movement of roll-out element with an open door of roll-out element compartment.
Electromagnetic blocking does not provide for:
– vacuum breaker switching in an intermediate position between operating and control positions of roll-out element;
– vacuum breaker switching with switched grounding blades;
– voltage supply to grounded bus sections.
In addition to blockings according to electrical safety rules for a safe PSG servicing, additional blockings that prevent opening of a door of a line cabinet compartment and removal of back cabinet wall is provided when grounding blades are open.
A blocking which prevents movement of a roll-out element from working position into control position and back with a switched breaker is made automatically.
Control and operating positions of roll-out element are signaled with help of auxiliary terminal switches which actuate in working and control positions.
A blocking which does not allow breaker switching in an intermediate position between operating and control positions of roll-out element is made in electromagnetic form. When a breaker moves between operating and control positions, a terminal breaking unit which is connected with rods opens circuits of breaker switching.
A blocking which does not allow voltage supply to grounded buses is made in electromagnetic hardware. An electromagnet located on a base of a roll-out trolley with a bus breaker blocks movement of a roll-out element from control position into operating position and back to supply voltage by means of an electric signal from operative blocking circuits.
